When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, to reason as a child; but now that I have become a man, I have done away with the traits of a child.  For at present we see in hazy outline by means of a metal mirror, but then it will be face to face.  At present, I know partially, but then I shall know accurately even as I am accurately known.  Now however, there remain faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:11-13

Why are American people, like children, always discouraged from reading Mein Kampf with the excuse that it is a disorganized text written by a mad man, while its racialized principles are used by American-Zionist/Neocons against any critic or criticism of Israel in order to silence all who do not agree with the State of Israel's irredentism (hunger for acquiring land) and apartheid practices.  Zionist/Neocons ignore the fact that Blacks more Blacks died in the Middle Passage and European conquests in Africa as died in the Shoah (Jewish Holocaust).  However, Mein Kampf seems to be the mapping of methodology of the American-Zionists/Neocons, not the Jews.  If you are a Jew, living in Israel or elsewhere, all you want is peace.  A Biblical past is for the White American Christian evangelicals, not for you.

Anti-Semitic Incidents In The U.S. Appear To Be On The Rise


NPR's Mary Louise Kelly speaks with Emory University religion Professor Deborah Lipstadt about the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and the broader rise in anti-Semitism.

Zionists and Jews should not be confused because by nature Zionists have despised African Americans since the 1970s when Irving Kristol and his neoconservative revolution provided the intellectual backing for destruction the Black Power Movement and President Lyndon Johnson's Great Society, and which supported the privatization of prisons and drug laws to reestablished the “normality” of Blacks “put back in their place.” 


Kristol bragged about his successes “destroying a race” in his Forty Good Years essay.  But failed to mention that his enthusiasm for urban law and order had created a shortage of urban Blacks—that made up 25 percent of the military (now labeled felons) wrecking the Neocons/PNAC plans for winning War on Terror. Now in its second decade and growing.  Using Mein Kampf methodology, Zionists always overplay their hands causing more Antisemitism, than fear.



Ralph Manheim in his translation of Mein Kampf (1971) notifies the reader of the text as to its grammatical weakness by cautioning that Mein Kampf is written in the style of a self-educated modern South German with a gift for oratory.  Of course this picture does not begin to characterize Hitler the man, but it does, I think, account for the elements of is style.

Hitler has been called a paranoiac; at all events, his view; all events, his view of the world is highly personal.  He makes the most extraordinary allegations without so much as an attempt to prove them.  The logic is purely psychological: Hitler is fighting his persecutors, magnifying his person, creating a dream-world in which he can be an important figure.


Abraham Henry Foxman (born May 1, 1940) is an American lawyer and activist.[4] He was National Director of the Anti-Defamation League from 1987 to 2015,[5] and is currently the League's National Director Emeritus. In March 2016, he became head of the Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City.[6]

Abraham Foxman in the Introduction to Manheim's translation of Mein Kampf posits that almost sixty years after the end of World War II, Mein Kampf has yet to become merely another historical document.  Its theories have long since been discredited, and its current influence seems limited to the furthest fringes of society, but it refuses to become just an outdated political text.  Mention it and a conversation can turn awkward; say its name and tempers can rise.  Some countries have banned it, and others have prohibited new translations.  Re-printings have become minor media events, eliciting protests and sometimes lawsuits.

To some extent, Mein Kampf's contemporary ability to offend results from its continued unfortunate ability to inspire.  The “bible of National Socialism” has found new generations of devotees in neo-Nazis, haters, racists, and Third Reich enthusiasts.

Even the fringes add up.  Aware of this, many people would prefer that Mein Kampf not be reprinted.  For the scholars who study it, it is already available in libraries and in secondhand bookstores.  Better not to make it widely available, some say, to keep it out of the hands of those who would revive the movement its author started.

Hitler's racial theories cemented together all of the disparate aspect of the disparate aspects of his philosophy.  Pan-Germanism, ultra-nationalism, rabid anti-Semitism anti-Marxism, and theories of racial conflict led to his Manichean philosophy of Aryan versus Jew.  [Now Zionist are against African Americans empathy.]

Each aspect of Hitler's ideology existed elsewhere [in America]; Hitler's achievement lay in weaving them together and presenting them as a heady brew that the demoralized and economically struggling German people could not refuse.

Though others may have formulated the National Socialist program in more sophisticated fashion, Hitler's essentialist formulations, presented in Mein Kampf and in his speeches, were able to galvanize the German people into ways that no other could.

Herein lies perhaps lies perhaps the most important lesson we can take from Mein Kampf.  Its shortcomings seem obvious; its atrocious style, puerile digressions, and narcissistic self-absorption should be clear even to the casual reader.  Its theories are extremist, immoral, and seem to promise war and catastrophe if taken seriously.

But somehow Mein Kampf and its author were embraced by a civilized nation and it lunatic plan was actually put into effect.  Mein Kampf seems absurd, even comical in places; it program of ultra-nationalism, racism, and territorial expansionism, its fascistic disdain for democracy and human rights, seems to caricature itself at times—yet this book was given to every newly married German couple from the late 1930s onward.

If we read this ridiculous tract while keeping in mind that history surrounding it—the frenzied Seig Heils, the mass rallies, the racial indoctrination, ultimately the barbarism and genocide that it inspired—we may begin to attain a historical perspective on the period.  A window to a world different from ours may open for us.

Here in the pages of Mein Kampf Hitler presented the world with his dark vision for the future.  Years would pass before he attained the power to realize that vision, but Mein Kampf’s existence denies the free world the excuse of ignorance.  We dismissed him as a madman and we ignored his wretched book, [The Art of the Deal]; the result was tragedy of unprecedented proportions.


Another lesson to take from Mein Kampf: the lesson of vigilance and responsibility, of not closing our eyes to the evil around us.  Since World War II, our societies have taken promising steps in this regard.  It is our responsibility to ensure the continued progress of that civilizing trend.

Empathy is what African American know best.  They remember their enslavement and Zionists have helped to remember it.  When Alan Dersherwitz talks of how free the Palestinians are and were to make choices, it is laughable.  Deals were made to desert Gaza and give it to HAMAS, not to free the Palestinians, but to punish them and to divide and conquer the PLO.  Zionism will end just as all overreaching by the Neocons ends: in tears and suffering.

The Hypocrisy of Alan Dershewitz makes Mein Kampf a very interesting memoir.

My dear Ms. Gravitt  -  I fear I am woefully ignorant of the machinations of the current state of causes for, and of, the opposition-stances that seem to roil underneath any word, or action, that brings these depth-charges exploding forth.  But, I am quite aware of the effect.  And from that, my own stance, or af-fect, in order to skirt them.  I try to be aware, but can only take so much, as I don't wish to take it -on,- so to speak.  More, to use it as a reflecting tool, and do, be, the Un-Expected.  To color my own immediate world with the inclusiveness that I myself seek.  

This piece is absolutely scholarly to me, and I thank you so for your search, and research.  I can feel the point from which you spring, and my sense is kindred.  

Thank you for the wellspring, and springboard.

We must know our history and why people hate US as a people.
